Americans spend billions of dollars on their teeth every year, especially when it comes to the appearance of their teeth. For example, misaligned teeth are usually fixed by braces and yellow teeth are fixed by professionally whitening—but what do you do about a gap in your teeth? Luckily, there are several options you should consider if you’re facing a gap in your teeth.

One treatment you may want to consider is dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells that can be fused to your teeth to correct imperfections in your smile, such as closing gaps and covering misshapen teeth. Veneers are custom made to fit your mouth, meaning they also feel natural and are comfortable. Veneers are also very sturdy, able to last for ten or more years with proper care.

A treatment known as dental bonding may also be using. Typically, our dentist will place this special material on more teeth in order to fill gaps in your smile. Fortunately, this bonding resin can be matched to the color of your teeth.

Finally, if you have a gap because of a missing tooth, our dentist may fill the space with a crown or a bridge. Both of these restoration options look and feel like natural teeth and are custom made to fit your smile. Similarly, if your gap is caused by misaligned teeth, you may want to consider using braces.
